Illegal Drugs Kill

Yes, illegal drugs kill; not the drug itself but the fact that they are illegal. The prevalence of murderous gangs in the US is only possible because of their involvement with illegal drugs. And what about on the other side of the border:

As many as 200 U.S.-trained Mexican security personnel have defected to drug cartels to carry out killings on both sides of the border and as far north as Dallas, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, told Congress on Wednesday.

The renegade members of Mexico's elite counter-narcotics teams trained at Fort Benning, Ga., have switched sides, contributing to a wave of violence that has claimed some 6,000 victims over the past 30 months, including prominent law enforcement leaders

Another 6,000 lives discarded because of a pious position of moral superiority. Are you opposed to legalization? Then you are complicit in the death of so many.
